Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) | Keeping Our Community Safe

Shipment Preparation and Home Infusion

Our team members are taking a planned and safe approach to our work in the pharmacy. We are actively monitoring CDC guidelines and routinely updating our plans, policies, and practices. We have also updated our approach to in home nursing in order to keep our nurses and our patients safe. Extra steps we’re taking include:

● Wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
● Immediate hand hygiene for all employees entering the workplace
● Monitoring our own health by instructing team members on methods to reduce risk
of exposure in their own home and personal life
● Disinfecting high-touch surfaces
● Screening all patients by phone within 24 hours of visit and again before entering a
home
● Nurses will wear personal protective equipment as recommended by the CDC
● Limiting contact during home visits to patient and immediate caregiver
● Nurses will not bring personal items into patient’s home and will disinfect items that
are not disposable
● Limit nursing time in the home by completing some documentation outside the
home
